History

"Below the south edge of the Shelbyville Moraine, where a ridge was deposited across the state by the Wisconsin Glacier, lies our home town of Shelbyville, Queen City of central Illinois. The history of Shelbyville, naturally, is interwoven with the history of Shelby County. The county was established by an act of the Illinois legislature in 1827, and section 9 of that act named the as yet unlocated county seat as Shelbyville. The name Shelby honored the Revolutionary War hero, Col. Isaac Shelby, later destined to be first governor of Kentucky." - A Brief History of Shelbyville by Miriam Herron
